I've Been Trying
#TokyoRevengers #Re:zero #Protagonist
Is it just me or does anyone else cannot withstand how a protagonist of an anime is useless...? I'm talking about Takemichi in Tokyo Revengers, and I'll try not to spoil it in case someone wants to watch it. To be honest, I personally don't recommend the series because there are multiple cringy scenarios and illogical plots. People say that manga is much better than anime, and according to a Youtuber's review: "Finish listening to the OP and go read the manga" I might give it a try if there's free time but now I'm just disappointed.
Takemichi as a 26-year-old "main protagonist" in a shonen manga, all he does is cry and forget what he should do for things not to happen again. What? Are you three years old? That kinda reminds me of Subaru in Re: Zero. I was so pissed watching the series when found out that he was practically useless and weak. They both have that kind of superpower but they're just wasting it.
Or perhaps I'm just an old Boomer-like anime fan who cannot accept out-of-ordinary shonen stories I'm not asking them to be like Saitama in One Punch just destroy everything, but can't they grow up just for a little bit?? The core spirit of shonen manga is watching the characters grow while emphasizing friendship, hard work, and a never-give-up attitude!
